The masts of Donebach longwave transmitter ( http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=46450 and http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=46451 ) were built according to http://de.structurae.de/structures/data/index.cfm?ID=s0010719 in 1966. Until 1972 there were 4 200 metre tall masts connected by wires. In 1972 two masts were dismantled as the antenna was transformed in a directional antenna with a radiation minimum showing toward Romania. In 1982 both masts were dismantled and replaced by the actual 363 metre tall masts. For these masts as construction elements of the upper segments the construction elements of the old masts were used. According to http://forum.mysnip.de/read.php?8773,54569,55956#msg-55956 it was planned to build two 490 metre tall masts at Donebach, but this was impossible due to concerns of flight safety administration office.

Here's what I did:

1. I added two new entries for the first two demolished mast.

2. For the current mast entries, I made not that they've been reconstructed twice. Since the tower were used in the construction of the 1982 towers, I didn't make another entry, I simply made note that the towers were reconstructed and expanded in 1982.
